Show and Tell - Photo Locket Pin

Time for Kelli's Show and Tell. Go to http://kellishouse.blogspot.com/ for more.

Today I'm sharing a Locket Pin that I've had since childhood. The locket opens and has a place for four small photos. It still has the same photos of my mother and father that I put in all those years ago. I think back then it must have been hard to find photos small enough for the locket and that is why I never used the other two. I've always liked this pin and still wear it sometimes!

What a sweet piece of jewelery to hold your parents' photos. One doesn't often see a locket in pin form.

To answer your question about the picture I showed today. Yes, it is curved glass. I didn't know it had a special name. I know Mickey's niece told him the frame was VERY valuable as an antique. Of course, that picture will never be taken out of that frame!!!
Thanks for your interest :o)

That is so lovely! And the pictures too! I don't know that I've ever seen one with places for FOUR photos. It's special that you've always had the same photos in it.

That locket is exquisite! It is particularly special that you have had the same photos of your parents in it all these years. Nice Show and Tell!

Becky said...

That is just amazing! What a very special treasure. You know, with the copy machines we have these days you can copy photos and they come out very nicely.

I have found that if you copy a black and white photo on a COLOR copier the shades and dimensions of the black and white come out so well.

Plus you can make pictures larger ... or in this case smaller ... to fit into your locket.

Just in case you have photos you want to put in the other two frames.

This is so neat. I'd wear it too.
